Publisher's Summary

The number-one New York Times best-selling author of the Sea Haven novels returns to the circle of the six sisters of the heart, bound by the elements - and to one who possesses the power to inflame the most dangerous passions of all.

Flame-haired Lissa Piner is a skilled glassblower whose delicate gift conceals a burning inner strength that can destroy as exquisitely as it can create. Commissioned to design chandeliers for a string of luxury hotels, her remarkable skills have taken her to Italy. But Lissa's real mission there is a secret. For her entire life has been a lie, leading to a chance to avenge a terrible wrong.

Enlisted as her bodyguard is Casmir Prakenskii, a trained assassin living off the grid. In Lissa he sees a kindred spirit - something unexpected and wicked, mysterious, and sensual. But more than desire is about to bring them together, because both of their pasts cry out for revenge. And with two people with this many secrets, this much passion, and this many enemies, someone is bound to get burned.

    "Narrator was wrong choice"
    Any additional comments?

    I only just started listening but I am already having trouble with the narration. The narrator sounds way off for the book, making the girls sound like they are in their 40 or 50, and possibly hard smokers, rather than the 20-30's something that they are. I will update my review as I progress and hopefully it will get better but so far the voice is really detracting from the experience.

    "Lissa's Story"

    Lissa's Story: or how those Sisters of the Heart girls can't stay away from those Prakenskii boys. Didnt think I'd like this story based on how it started, but I'm glad I stuck with it. Good story line. Weakest part is Lissa rushing to leave on her trip saying she was staying away from Prakenskiis, then rushing into the arms of one. Monda wasn't terrible, but I REALLY miss not having Phil Gigante. Monda's voice is a little too mature middle class housewife-y for these characters.

    "good addition to series."

    I like love scenes but it felt like some of these were overkill. Didn't love where it ended, wish they'd been back in Sea Haven.
    The narrator was good but I could here a static around her at times. Felt a bit like a cassette.

    Story
    "Was this supposed to be in the Sea Haven series?"

    Didn't feel much like it, other than a few of the character names. Missing too many elements that I always liked about the earlier Sea Haven books. I found myself zoning out or skipping through most of the book because of so many sex scenes that went on too long, repeated the same phrases over and over, and made the heroine seem too submissive and the hero too controlling -- not interesting. Very little interaction with the sisters which I always look forward to. And where's the special bond between hero and heroine? (This seemed particularly inconsistent, I think some bond abilities were used once or twice, early on, but afterward I kept wondering why they didn't use it.) For that matter, where was the elemental abilities? OK, yeah, it was mentioned a few times and shown a bit (particularly by the hero, the heroine seemed very ineffective here and might as well have had no special abilities at all). I was disappointed with the previous book, too, but hate to stop a series when there's one more to go... and the preview of the hero to come in the next was one of the most interesting elements in this one. The narrator was ok -- nothing special, not one of the worst I've heard either.

    "disappointed"

    I ao looked forward to this book as I like these two series. but I was disappointed with it on so many levels. There was very little done with her talent and I so disagree with trying to make rough and abusive sex as romantic. sorry but I just didn't care for this one.

    "Disappointing"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I haven't been able to passed chapter 4 which is a real pity, I was really looking forward to the continuing story in book 5 of Sisters of the hearts.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Christine Feehan again?

    I've listened or read all her books to date - so it is most likely that I will continue to do so.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Carol Monda’s performances?

    I would give her another chance


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Fire Bound?

    Not sure if the problem was with the story or the narrator - so I can't say

    Story
    "I love this series and HATED this book."
    Would you try another book from Christine Feehan and/or Carol Monda?

    Yes


    What was most disappointing about Christine Feehan’s story?

    First, the opening is jerky. We go from her sisters seeing her off to her jumping in bed with a man she is SWORN to avoid in what seems like moments. Then Feehan does a Laurel Hamilton...Sex scene after explicit sex scene after explicit sex scene. Remember when Hamilton did that with Anita. This is worse. It goes way beyond BDSM with women being beaten, tortured and raped. All casually. I don't even know if I will try to listen to the last book. I like a little kinky sex, but on and on and on and on. Gak!


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    Narration was fine.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Anger and disappointment.


    Any additional comments?

    This makes me really mad. A great series ruined by the 50 Shades vibe.

    Story
    "Just Trying to Get Through the Series"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Yes. The story did not bring Lissa and Casmir Prakenskii home to meet her family. I don't understand why that wasn't done. It made it feel like Lissa's story was incomplete- like we were left in the hanging. We heard about Lissa's fear but not her facing that fear with her sisters helping her realize the true meaning of a loving family.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    I did not see Lissa as being afraid of being abandoned. I can see how she would have that fear with the death of her parents at so young an age and that sorry excuse of an uncle. But why she would think her sisters would withdraw their love is mind boggling. This is one strong, courageous, resourceful woman yet she goes to Europe meets the love of her life and then doubts her sisters' love? How does that work? And to top things off we don't see the resolution of that before the story end? That is something I would definitely change about the story. If Lissa has this fear, we needed to see her and her sisters work it out.


    Which character – as performed by Carol Monda – was your favorite?

    Frankly there have just been too many narrators. Carol was adequate. I don't think one narrator did more than one story which is hard on the listener. The Lev-Levy name thing could easily have been a narrator change error instead of an author error. Do the narrators even know they are reading from a series? Do they listen to the other stories in the series?


    What would have made this romance irresistible?

    This is not only a stand alone romance, it is also part of a series that involves women who have formed a family. Lissa has five sisters who love and support her. Why isn't she confident in their love? Why doesn't she expect them to accept her choice of Casmir Prakenskii as she has supported their choices? At no point have her sisters not supported and encouraged her as far as we've seen. What is this lack of confidence about? It is just difficult to believe she would not bring Casmir Prakenskii home and expect their teasing acceptance of her choice. Why didn't we get to see that homecoming? Why? Was this story merely somehow the setup for the bringing home of the final Prakenskii brother, Blythe's husband? Frankly I hope Ms. Feehan takes the all the time she needs to tie things up well. I am wondering what will happen with the land that the Prakenskii boys are purchasing. Will it become more farmed land? Will there be more laborers or will the last brother's team "retire" on the farm? While Ricky and Lev don't want children will the other sisters have them? Are Arianna and Max pregnant? What about Judith and Stephan. So many things to wonder about and hope to see answered in the end.


    Any additional comments?

    I am looking forward to the final installment of this series. I do not plan to get involved in anymore of series with this author. Each of the stories have had great potential but the continuity errors throughout the series detracted from a good chunk of the enjoyment the series offered. I think the stories also suffered from the changing narrators. Granted, none of the narrators were awful. It's just the different in narrators had a negative impact. Hopefully in the final installment we'll see Lissa and Casmir Prakenskii come home and Lissa will see that the love of her family accepts her as human with human frailties- even fear of abandonment- and love her because she's their sister. What she's kept secret does not change what she has meant to them. It just doesn't matter. I wish they'd had the opportunity to teach her that in this installment. Since that didn't happen perhaps she'll know it through watching as Blythe's story plays out.

    "Just something...."

    I'm not sure what it is but I didn't enjoy following the story line (which was good). The sex was steamy. My least favorite of all the series and I love Christine Feehan, just not this book.
